Second Thoughts: Photographer Jamie Martin is thrilled to land a job with the Rockets…until she must work with her ex-fiancé, second baseman Nick Durban. Although Nick doesn’t know he fathered Jamie’s child, Jamie is so determined to keep him out of her life that she tries online dating—never dreaming Nick’s her perfect electronic match!
Third Degree: Chef Ashley Harris and third baseman Josh Cantor are pitted against each other in a cooking reality TV show. The flames in the bedroom roar higher than the ones in their kitchens, but only one lover can win the grand prize—a gourmet restaurant at Rockets Field.
Stopping Short: Bad-boy shortstop Drew Marshall will be cut from the team if spin doctor Jessica Barnes can’t save his career. Widowed Jessica knows nothing about baseball, and her job is made infinitely harder when a well-intentioned teammate announces she is Drew’s secret fiancée.
